Embryonic trophoblast stem embryo medium

Cell Guidance Systems offer a unique medium that supports the development of artificial embryo structures, embryonic trophoblast stem embryos (ETS-embryos), when trophoblast stem cells and embryonic stem cells are cocultured. Optimised for robust and efficient generation of ETS-embryos and using a simple protocol, this medium supports the self-assembly of structures that are observed in the mammalian embryo.

Benefits of using the ETS-embryo medium
• Optimised for robust and efficient generation of ETS-embryos
• Provides a unique cell culturing environment
• Supports selfassembly of structures observed in the mammalian embryo
• Simple and easy to follow protocol
• Functionally tested

The lead researchers at Cambridge University talk to Cell Guidance Systems about artificial ETS-embryos

Embryo Development

A series of images showing the development of ETS embryos over a period of five days. Trophoblast-derived cells are stained with a DNA-marker only (blue) and ES-derived cells stained with embryonic marker OCT4 (red).
